Postgraduate taught programmes

MMus in Music and PGDip in Music Performance

With one of the largest postgraduate communities in the UK (typically around 50-60 research students and 20 Masters students each year), we are established as one of the country's premier institutions for postgraduate education in Music.

Our research profile is of international standing, and this is reflected in the exceptionally high quality of our postgraduate provision.

Our taught Masters programme, the MMus in Music, is designed to allow you either to specialise in one particular area of advanced musical study such as composition, ethnomusicology, musicology, or performance, or to choose a more varied set of options.

We also offer a PGDip in Music Performance, and a flexible Continuing Professional Development (CPD) mode of study.
